J'Zyra Thompson was just 19-months-old

Tragic baby 'cooked alive'
A pair of toddlers who were left at home alone so
their mother could collect a pizza killed their
baby sister after they put her in an oven and
turned it on.

J'Zyra Thompson was found with severe burns at a
house in Houston, Texas, in the United States.

Their mother, seven-month pregnant Racquel
Thompson, tried to resuscitate the 19-month-old
but failed to and she died at the scene.

She had left her four children - all under the age
of five - at home while she and her boyfriend went
to Domino's Pizza and a Walgreens pharmacy to pick
up a prescription, police said.

One of the two three-year-olds involved told Child
Protective Services (CPS) they put J'Zyra in the
oven and the other "made it hot".

The baby was kicking the oven door while inside,
court records stated.

Case workers say the couple left the four kids at
home last Thursday without telling a grandmother
who lived in the same apartment complex.

No charges have been filed against Thompson or her
boyfriend but criminal charges are expected, CPS
workers said.

Thompson's ex-boyfriend, Fredrick Price, came
looking for his two three-year-old children on the
morning of the incident, saying he had not heard
from his children in months and had been trying to
contact Racquel.

The incident happened in the city of Houston in
America's south

He said: "She was a cute little baby, I just
didn't know if that was my daughter or not.

"It's very irresponsible, someone should have been
here or I should have gotten a phone call, come
and get my children."

Mr Price added he had never taken a paternity test
to see if he was the father of his ex-girlfriend's
youngest child.

The remaining three children have been placed in
foster care as it was deemed there were no
suitable relatives to take care of them.

Thompson also has an older child who lives with
his father and allegedly drove her children around
without a licence or child car seats.
